In Feet Don't Fail Me Now, running and music columnist Ben Kaplan describes how to train for a marathon in one year, even if you have never run before. Based on his own experience transforming himself from an "average guy" into a dedicated runner who qualified for the Boston Marathon, the book provides a week-by-week training program, split into four three-month sections -- each concluding with a race from 5 kilometres to the Boston Marathon -- along with critical information about such topics as nutrition and hydration, how to select shoes, race strategy, pacing, proper form, and whether or not it is important to stretch, with input from experts from around the world. Kaplan also draws from his music writing and connections and includes recommendations for songs to run to by musicians such as Jack White, Paul Simon, Norah Jones, Feist, and Pearl Jam. He presents serious information, but his humor and infectious enthusiasm make it a hell of a lot of fun. Feet Don't Fail Me Now will inspire the most recalcitrant runners to lace up their shoes and hit the pavement.

How Do You Like Me Now? A True Story of Greed, Fear and Disaster as a Wall Street Day Trader. In 1998 the internet bubble was bulging and the stock market was on fire. Everyone in America seemed addicted to stocks, and Rob Perrego was along for the ride. In October of that year he signed on at Worldco Inc. to become a professional day trader, and his life became a roller coaster of soaring highs and crushing lows that almost drove him insane. Learning to make money was as risky and exhilarating as gambling in Vegas. But after an arduous period of study, trial and error, Perrego became a consistently profitable trader and Worldco made him a managing director. At one point he was moving millions of dollars of stock a day and earning $10,000 a week. Day trading seemed more like hitting a cash register than working for a living. But hubris has its price, and the ride could not last forever. In this honest, insightful, and gripping book, Perrego takes us behind the scenes into a hidden, high stakes world where triumph and disaster take place in the blink of an eye.We come to understand not only how fear and greed rule the stock market, but also the psychological and emotional costs paid by those who choose to play the game.
When Michael Mewshaw receives a call from a stranger who says she has reason to believe he is her biological father, Mewshaw realizes he has been half dreading, half hoping for this to happen for over 30 years. Just like the young woman who wants to find the last piece to the puzzle of her life, he hopes to answer questions that have plagued him for decades. But first he has to make sure that she is who she claims to be. In this fascinating memoir, Mewhsaw confronts his own past, the chaos of his family, and complicated memories of the woman he once loved. His unusual role in the baby’s birth, her adoption, and, now, her search for her biological parents sets the stage for a revealing personal odyssey that offers a quest for identity and a journey of discovery, an obsession with recapturing the past and righting old wrongs, the constant potential for disappointment balanced against the possibility of redemption. As he finds his old flame and her old lover, rediscovering who he was and who he has become, he finds his life enriched in the process.
This book is a disarming look into one man's faith journey that will penetrate your heart and infiltrate your concept of God, whatever that currently is, to show the unmistakable, the famous Yahweh, Elohim, Jehovah, El Shaddai-the presence of the Almighty God-still alive and at work today in the life of one very ordinary man. The author shares the rawness of his journey with Christ through one of his life's great valleys and winds up following God eight thousand miles from home-only to find that God was up to more than he could have imagined. His story tugs at the heart of obedience in the small things, what it means to surrender your life to Christ, and what God might wind up doing with that through the process.

From a Whitbread Award–winning author: A WWI novel of loyalty and friendship “graced with the immanent lyrical talent of the Irish writers at their best” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Born to an aristocratic family on an estate outside of Dublin, Alexander Moore feels the constraints of his position most acutely in his friendship with Jerry Crowe, a Catholic laborer in town. Jerry is one of the few bright spots in Alec’s otherwise troubled life. The boys bond over their love of swimming and horses, despite the admonitions of Alec’s cold and overbearing mother, who scolds her son for venturing outside of his class. When the Great War begins, he seizes the opportunity to escape his overbearing mother and taciturn father, and enlists in the British army. Jerry, too, enlists—not out of loyalty to Britain, but to prepare himself for the Republican cause. Stationed in Flanders, the young men are reunited and find that, while encamped in the trenches, their commonalities are what help them survive. Now a lieutenant and an officer, Alec and Jerry again find their friendship under assault, this time from the rigid Major Glendinning, whose unyielding adherence to rank leads the two men toward a harrowing impasse that will change their lives forever.
